Synopsis: Bubba is out on one of his undersea adventures when he finds a frightened Orca trapped by a fishing net! In this attention gripping yet comical tale, Bubba works with his buddy Sammy the Seagull to free Ollie. Come along and join Bubba the Bottlenose dolphin as he makes a new buddy while sharing a day they won’t soon forget.
Ollie the Orca presents a cute little story about friendship. It shows how you can get through”impossible” situations with some help from friends. The language is brief and clear which makes the story easy to follow. The flow to the narrative is simple which would make it easy for early readers to read. The only negative thing is the artwork: it is hard to distinguish “terrified” from “joyful” in the characters facial expression.
